I'm actually pretty optimistic about it myself, but my main concern is the episode count and what exactly the plan is as far as adapting past part 1. Hopefully we'll get some light on that soon.

No way it's a long series if it's going to air on MBS, Tokyo MX, and a bunch of other stations at once. It's more likely that they're just doing Phantom Blood as a 1-cour series, and they'll probably want to see if anyone actually wants more before they consider making more seasons. Which means... Phantom Blood is probably all we're getting. Lol.

At the very least we should get Battle Tendency adaptation too, goddammit.

Btw if its Kuroko's basketball replacement, that slot kinda promising for chance we can get multiple sequel.

They're unpopular with sakuga fans. The main complaints seem to be:

a) Yasufumi Soejima's style of 2D/3D integration (or lack thereof)
b) uninteresting character motion that's a far cry from the expressive and innovative work produced by popular animators

Most viewers aren't bothered by the second point. However, some judge animation by a more stringent criteria, so from their perspective, David Production turns in mediocre, factory-quality work.

If it's 1-cour I think we might just get Phantom Blood, which would be bullshit. If it's 2-cour we might indeed get Battle Tendency as well, which would probably be what most people want at least.

As far as David Production goes, I don't think it's a bad thing. Definitely not "oh noes it's DEEN aaaaaaaaaah!" or whatever. It's not automatically a good thing though, since it's not a particularly experienced studio so we don't know what to expect exactly. But can be exciting too.

I just realized yesterday that I read about David Production doing the Baby Superman pilot and series for Warner , directed by Toshiaki Hontani, some time back. I had totally forgotten about it, but it's a pretty interesting coincidence that their next big series is now a Warner Japan production. Or maybe... that isn't a coincidence at all.

Could Battle Tendency even be done in 1 cour? I could see Phantom Blood going either way between 1 cour or 2 cour since it starts off pretty slow but Battle Tendency jumps into things a bit faster and it's longer than Phantom Blood. Well since we don;t really know what the main plan is regarding anything past part 1 it;s just speculation but personally I think Battle Tendency would have to be 2 cour to be done right.

Fabulous levels rising. Both of them look awesome.

I'm curious to see what Erina will look like.

This had better not be a 13 episode OVA series again, because JoJo deserves much better than that.

Having at least something is better than having no animated project at all.

Yes and no. Sometimes a story is better left in written/pictorial format than in animated form.

I can't always agree with that. I have seen some pretty horrid adaptations that served no justice to the original.

Sure say that to all recent novels, VN and mangas that got their titles animated, but made with little faithfulness, and more stupid makeups which ruined the storyline completely.

But Jojo? No way... Jojo deserves more than just "at least"... its a 25 years series with popularity comparable to WSJ's big titles like Hokuto no Ken, DBZ and Yuyu Hakusho. Even several of its characters had become inspiration to many other great gaming characters, and mind you, the concept of Stand has become so wide, that many other mangas following such concept, just that, with different names of course.

In short, Jojo is a pioneer to many great things. Such great title only deserve to get "at least better than nothing"? It does not do Jojo any justice at all, not after staying strong for more than 2 decades... screw that previous OVAs and movie... what Jojo needs is something grand and bigger than that.
